Bond 25 Star Says The Women Wear The Pants In No Time To Die

It’s Bondvember, everybody! The month where everything Bond is gold, especially the eyes and the guns! You know what else is gonna be golden, though? The release of Daniel Craig’s last 007 flick, No Time To Die. We don’t exactly know a lot about the movie just yet and while a bit can be inferred from pre-production snapshots and the brief plot blurb we’ve been given, Ana de Armas, the de facto Bond Girl of the film, has now offered up a better taste of the personality that the movie will be going for.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter alongside co-star (and new 007 title holder) Lashana Lynch, Armas spoke highly of the female characters in the film, saying that herself and producer Barbara Broccoli have created something different than the typical Bond Girls of yesteryear.

“It’s pretty obvious that there is an evolution in the fact

Bond: 10 Worst Things Blofeld Has Done

Perhaps James Bond's biggest nemesis is the cunning Ernst Stavro Blofeld. The classic villain first appeared in From Russia with Love as a voice, and showed up again in the following films as more and more of his mystery unraveled. Due to a rights issue, the series could not use him for more than forty years, only regaining the ability to do so with 2015's Spectre.

Review: "Lady Scarface" (1941) Starring Dennis O'Keefe, Judith Anderson And Frances Neal; Warner Archive DVD Release

  • CinemaRetro
By Lee Pfeiffer

The Warner Archive has showcased another "B" movie and rescued it from relative obscurity with the release of "Lady Scarface". The 1941 movie is an Rko "Poverty Row" production with a low budget (i.e. there are almost no exterior shots) and abbreviated running time of only 66 minutes. The titular character is never referred to as such in the film. She's simply called Slade and she's a mysterious Chicago gangster who the police have been searching for under the assumption their prey is a man. Slade does bear a scar on her cheek but it would appear this was added simply to enable the producers to capitalize on the "Scarface" moniker in order to tie the film in with Paul Muni's classic gangster flick. Slade appears in the opening scene in which she and her gang rob a businessman and loot his safe. She ends up shooting him in cold blood.

Should 007 Treat Women Better? ‘Bond Doesn’t Need To,’ Phoebe Waller-Bridge Says, But Her Film Will

  • Indiewire
Across 24 previous 007 films, James Bond has tangled with women of every background imaginable: some every bit his equal (see Michelle Yeoh in “Tomorrow Never Dies” and Sophie Marceau in “The World Is Not Enough”), and some who’ve felt dropped into his spy adventures as little more than eye candy with next to nothing to do. That hit or miss record is almost certainly because the Bond film franchise has historically only ever had one female screenwriter: Johanna Harwood, who helped launch the series with writing credits on its first two films, “Dr. No” and “From Russia With Love.”

Until now that is: “Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has polished the script for Bond 25, currently shooting in Jamaica, after she helped bring a more contemporary edge to the spy genre by creating the acclaimed BBC America series “Killing Eve.”

So does Waller-Bridge want to address the 007 franchise’s historical wrongs against women?

Phoebe Waller-Bridge: James Bond Is “Absolutely Relevant Now” But The Film “Has To Treat Women Properly”
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has opened up about her contribution to the forthcoming James Bond film, calling it “absolutely relevant now.” However, she has warned that it has to “grow” and “evolve” and the film has to “treat women properly,” even if Bond himself doesn’t.

The Fleabag creator, who adapted Killing Eve for television, told Deadline about her work polishing the script for the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed film, which is due for release in 2020.

She has become only the second woman in Bond history to be credited on a script after Johanna Hardwood, who wrote on 1962’s Dr. No and 1963’s From Russia With Love.

“There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not [the Bond franchise] is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women,” she said. “I think that’s bollocks. I think he’s absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge to Polish ‘Bond 25’ Script
“Fleabag” and “Killing Eve” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been brought in to polish the script for the next James Bond film, Variety has confirmed.

News of Waller-Bridge’s involvement on the currently untitled Bond film, the 25th in the long-running franchise and the fifth to star Daniel Craig, first appeared in Britain’s Observer newspaper on Sunday. A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed that the British writer was indeed taking a pass through the script and that director Cary Fukunaga was fully aware of the decision. The source said production remained on track to begin at the end of April.

Waller-Bridge’s involvement came at the direct request of Craig, according to the Observer, which said Craig felt the script needed a polish to add more humor. The Emmy- and BAFTA-nominated writer is known for her offbeat, caustic humor and strong characterization.

Bronson Gets a Blast from the Past in Young’s ‘Cold Sweat’ (1970) | Blu-ray Review

Terence Young will forever be remembered amongst the pantheon of James Bond directors, having helmed Dr. No (1962), From Russia with Love (1963) and Thunderball (1965). But his filmography following these titles yields an interesting, if uneven coterie of classic thrillers and a variety of obscured curios. Amongst these is 1970’s Cold Sweat, a French-Italian co-produced thriller which features Charles Bronson and Liv Ullmann as a married couple who are confronted by the secret, criminal past he barely escaped from a decade years (the pairing would end up being the first of three from Young and Bronson) and based on a novel by Richard Matheson.…

Bond 25: Phoebe Waller-Bridge to Work on the Script

Joseph Baxter Apr 15, 2019

Phoebe Waller-Bridge will reportedly take a crack at polishing the Bond 25 script, representing the latest turnover.

Bond 25 appears to be getting an injection of modern quirkiness to its script, which has passed through the hands of a sizable number of screenwriters by now.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been recruited by the proverbial MI6 of MGM to “liven up” the script to the still-developing 25th James Bond movie, reports The Observer. The move reportedly occurred at the behest of star Daniel Craig himself, who wants to bring the wit of Waller-Bridge – an actress and writer, notably the creator of BBC America’s smash spy series Killing Eve and starring creator of the Amazon Prime comedy, Fleabag – to the nearly 60-year-old Bond film franchise.

Moreover, it appears that early talks about Waller-Bridge’s contribution to the script have already taken place. With Waller-Bridge currently in New York making the

Phoebe Waller-Bridge to enliven new 'Bond' film

"Fleabag" creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been roped in to lend her offbeat style to the script of the new James Bond film, known as of now as Bond 25. According to The Guardian, Waller-Bridge has been specifically requested by actor Daniel Craig, who plays 007, to bring her wit and quirkiness to the screenplay. Craig, who lives in New York with his wife Rachel Weisz, is a fan of "Fleabag", which reached the end of its second series last week, and also of "Killing Eve", which Waller-Bridge developed.

Sources close to the film in the Us said that while in New York she discussed with Craig how to improve the script of Bond 25, which the 007 actor felt needed some "polishing", by introducing more humour and the offbeat style of writing she is best known for.
